I went on the wild dolphin swim/cruise

I went on the wild dolphin swim/cruise! This was such an awesome and beautiful experience!!!! Surprised my friend with tickets for her and I to go for her birthday/Australia day. This was even more incredible than I could have imagined. There was so much dolphin activity and they swam up so close to me almost touching me. Saw a few different breeds of dolphin with different colours and even had a mum and baby dolphin swim together underneath me. At the end, we got to watch a video, which I didn't even know we were being recorded! This made my experience so much better as I was able to purchase a USB and take home amazing clear videos and photos which show me pointing and getting excited as a group of about 5-6 dolphins come right up to us and swim with us! I can't wait to do this again, as my other friends are all in awe over the footage and want to experience the same!

Fantastic experience

Fantastic experience! I would give 10 stars if I could. It was super fun & very informative as we were shown major landmarks along the way such as Taronga Zoo, Point Piper mansions, Kirribilli House, Shark Island, Rose Bay and many more. Expect to get wet.

Thanks for giving us an unforgettable moment

Thanks for giving us an unforgettable moment! It's really really exciting, fantastic and wonderful. Once 1st dropped to the sea, I felt a little bit scared for the wave. It went away when the dolphins were explored. Nevertheless, I and my wife missed the other dolphin swim tour at Kangaroo Island last Tuesday due to bad weather condition, we're able to obtain such an exciting experience at all. Your team was quite professional and excellent during the trip. We hope to join again in the future and highly recommend to our friends.
